Still plenty of Ethereum mining buzz, with a 40-GPU setup on Tweaktown, a Guide to Ethereum on Techspot, silent mining on LegitReviews and AMD vs nVIDIA GPUs also on LegitReviews. Meanwhile discussion continues in this thread, where one member has ordered 130 video cards so far..

Here's an interesting one: using AWS for artificial intelligence on TechARP. Just before we flew to Computex 2017, we attended the AWS Masterclass on Artificial Intelligence. It offered us an in-depth look at AI concepts like machine learning, deep learning and neural networks. We also saw how Amazon Web Services (AWS) uses all that to create easy-to-use tools for developers to create their own AI applications at low cost and virtually no capital outlay.

Stephen Hawking thinks we need to get back to the Moon, as a project to unite humanity. Prof Stephen Hawking has called for leading nations to send astronauts to the Moon by 2020. They should also aim to build a lunar base in 30 years' time and send people to Mars by 2025. Prof Hawking said that the goal would re-ignite the space programme, forge new alliances and give humanity a sense of purpose.

OCClub look into memory speed and gaming performance. After running through all of the tests, it appears that what I previously thought was an easy and clear answer is in fact more complicated. With the evidence provided I can safely say that memory can play a large role in some games over all frame rates. However, other factors like the processor, type of video card, and resolution will usually provide bigger impact in the final frame rates.

OCInside have updated their interactive guide to fitting coolers and fans on motherboards. Now with Intel Skylake-X X299 LGA2066 motherboards, AMD Ryzen B350 and X370 Socket AM4 motherboards, Intel LGA1151 Z270, H270 and B250 Kaby Lake motherboards, Intel X99 LGA2011-3 motherboards and many new CPU coolers!
